What does dopamine depletion mean? What are the symptoms? What organs are affected? How do you manage dopamine depletion? What is the dopamine challenge test? Can labs test for dopamine depletion? Physician Assisant David Overton answers these and other questions about Parkinson's, tremors and dopamine depletion.
Dopamine depletion affects between 8% to 17% of people A few of the problems associated with dopamine deficiency include anemia,, balance problems, blood sugar problems, bone density problems, circulation problems, digestion problems, food cravings, hand tremors, head and facial tremors, heart problems, low or high blood pressure, inability to lose weight, kidney problems, light headedness, low sex drive, nicotine cravings, obesity, Parkinson's or Parkinson's like symptoms, slow metabolism, slow or rigid movements, substance abuse, tension, tremors and thyroid disorders.
Dopamine problems are also related to personality problems: aggression, anger, carelessness, depression, guilt or feeings of worthlessness,/hopelessness, inability to handle stress, mood swings, procrastination and self destructive thoughts.
David will discuss these issues and how best to manage dopamine problems. For further information about David Overton visit his website at: www.natmeds.net
Relationships are the stuff of our deepest pain and joy. They can leave gaping holes that cause great vulnerability to addiction, and they are also a large part of healing addictions. Ed Khouri shares a fascinating piece of research that links trauma through early attachment problems to dopamine receptor density that affects the ability to regulate pain, pleasure, and emotions. That sets the bar for the level of relational joy in people’s lives. Propensity for addiction increases radically when relational joy is low. What can be done to increase our joy bonds? Lots! Join Beyond Abuse Radio as we explore the connection between addiction and attachment and catch the hope for healing.
These days we hear a lot about genetically-altered, chemically-grown fruits and vegetables. Many people clamor for food that is fresher,sustainable and grown without pesticides.
What are the consequences of years of pesticide usage and farming methods that strip the nutrients from our soil? IS organic farming practical and are the results really that much better?
Teresa's guest, Tom Earnshaw, is an organic & sustainable farmer, educator, and the founder of Cambridge Farms in northwest Florida. He is an advocate of what he calls “outlaw farming,” and offers people a place to learn healthy farming practices through his classes, farm tours, and gardening partnerships. His Farmer’s Market co-op brings organic farming veterans and newbies together to trade and barter with one another and learn from each other.
Stress is a part of life. You can’t avoid it, especially in today’s hectic world. What you can avoid are the health damaging effects of stress.
Health Guru, Beverly Nadler, will give you the facts you need to become aware of the “stress response” that releases hormones that become toxic to your body, and to know how to stop the response before it gets out of hand, and to neutralize its effects with the “relaxation response.”
It’s about training your brain, calming the ancient reptilian part, called the amygdala. The amygdala cries “danger” and causes the “fight or flight” response. While it often saved the lives of our ancestors, it is often endangering ours. Beverly assures us that anyone who applies what she shares can avoid the negative effects of stress.
Background: Substances of abuse are a cultural phenomenon as ancient as civilization itself. Only recently, however, have scientists begun to study their effects on us, and more specifically, their effects on our brains. Why do people get addicted to drugs, tobacco, and alcohol? Why is it so hard to kick a habit? It stands to reason that since drug use is self-destructive, people would naturally avoid it. This obviously is not the case. What is not so obvious, however, is why people turn to addictive drugs. People use drugs, tobacco, and alcohol to feel good, without regard to the fact that long-term effects are very bad. Research is only now showing us how genetic and environmental factors all play a part in our susceptibility to substance addiction.
KEY WORDS: Alcoholism, dopamine, emotional memory, neurotransmitter, physical dependence, addiction

The depletion of the Ogallala Aquifer.
The Ogallala Aquifer is a shallow water table aquifer located beneath the Great Plains in the United States. One of the world's largest aquifers, it underlies an area of approximately 174,000 mi² (450,000 km²) in portions of eight states: (South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas). Depletion is accelerating, with 2% lost between 2001 and 2009 alone. Certain aquifer zones are now empty; these areas will take over 6,000 years to replenish naturally through rainfall. The Ogallala used to have an average depth of 240 feet; however, today its average depth is just 80 feet. There is Texas town called Happy which has lost all of its water because of the depletion Ogallala Aquifer so their farmers can no longer farm the land there. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says that in 60 years the plains will be uneconomical to farm. We have built cities towns and farms around something that is unsustainable. About 71 percent of our water is used to irrigate our food.
Hear my thoughts on the one therapy for Parkinson's disease with a proven track record. You can adopt this therapy yourself. It requires no prescriptions from doctors. And, it is free to activate any moment of the day or night. What in the world is this therapy? Listen in to find out.
I also answer a number of questions about therapies that help reverse the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Some of the questions I addressed are:
I have been very focused on heavy metal and liver detox/diet is 60 - 70 percent raw food - lots of greens. I feel my gait has improved but my left hand/arm tremor is getting worse. I take only LDN. Any thoughts?
How can I reduce and/or stop a hand tremor? Also, stop the tremor temporarily for several hours for a particular activity like ballroom dancing
I am thinking if introducing CBD's in my regimen to address symptoms. Could you elaborate on the mechanism and use of CBD's.
What is the best remedy for face muscle stiffness?
My husband has PD and is taking the low dose naltrexone (found out on your program and doing well with it. Also takng caridopa and pramipexole 3X day. He now has a poblem with drooling which is a really hard thing to face and deal with. Suggestions?
I will do anything possible to reverse my PD. Please help.
What do you know related to the use of Wellbutrin to optimize dopamine and the use of CBD 's to neutralize symptoms?

Inspiration of the Day
If you want happiness for an hour…
take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day…
If you want happiness for a month…
If you want happiness for a year…
inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime…
help someone else.
So Now What?
In a study at the University of Pennsylvania, volunteers asked to engage in either a pleasurable or charitable act reported that the charitable act caused them to feel happier longer than the pleasurable one did.
Altruism beats out pleasure for greater happiness.
Just by giving to somebody, giving of your time, energy or money, that releases hormones, neurotransmitters, and protective antibodies which increase the immune system.
When altruism was studied with MRIs it was found that giving lit up the same areas of the brain that lit up when you received a reward.
Your brain creates something called the Helper’s High, similar to a runner’s high after a workout. Giving releases endorphins and dopamine which lead to a feeling of elation followed
by a feeling of calm.
Studies also show that you live longer and are healthier.
Don’t have any money to donate to your favorite charity?
So busy with work and family that you don’t have any extra time to help out with a project?
That’s ok because sometimes the best thing you can do for another person is to just give them your attention and listen...

It is a well-known fact that smoking reduces fitness. It does this in a number of ways, chiefly by reducing the amount of oxygen available in the body. Since oxygen plays a major role in energy production, even a minor depletion has an impact on physical performance.
MAJOR EFFECTS OF SMOKING ON FITNESS
David Pyne, an Australian sports physiologist, lists the major effects of smoking on the body's respiratory and circulatory system as follows:
High levels of carbon monoxide from smoking reduce the amount of oxygen absorbed into the blood from the lungs.
Carbon monoxide in the blood also reduces the amount of oxygen that is released from the blood into the muscles.
Smoke inhalation has an immediate effect on respiration, increasing airways resistance and therefore reducing the amount of oxygen absorbed into the blood.
Smoking causes chronic (or long-term) swelling of mucous membranes, which also leads to increased airways resistance.
Smoking increases the heart rate for a given level of exercise.
CARBON MONOXIDE - THE MAIN OFFENDER
Carbon monoxide, the same lethal gas which is released by motor vehicle exhausts, is present in cigarette smoke and is absorbed rapidly into the bloodstream.
On today's show, I read John Stossel's piece on the importance of immigration reform. AGeorgia Mayor who wants immigration reform because his constituents face the threat of deportation. Briefly I mention some feedback on my page that provides insight into the propaganda moving in Democrat circles that seeks to justify Obama's unwillingness to address immigration issues. It is reported that "Latinos don't actually care about immigration and illegal immigrants DON'T VOTE!" I find that very revealing indeed! Later I read a terrific piece by Anthony Bourdain called "Under the Volcano" which describes the culture of Mexico and why we Americans love Mexican food but not Mexicans. I discuss the politics of "Global Warming" or is it "Climate Change" because in the 1990's it was "Ozone Depletion." What will be tomorrow? Today it's nothing more that fear mongering that covers an agenda of global communism where major nations pay off developing nations not to develop. In New York the trash left behind by protesters demonstrated their hypocrisy.
MyRA & GRA's vs. IRA's and 401(k)'s - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. One of the underlying questions for each topic on the show is whether it will help our listeners "Live the American Dream"? In past generations several retirement programs were introduced to provide a safety net as people retire. Among those were "defined benefit plans" like government Social Security and company pensions. Economic and financial uncertainties plus bankruptcies led to eliminating or dramatically reducing most company plans. Likewise we see Social Security plans throughout the world facing bankruptcy, depletion or a reduction of benefits.
In the meantime we've seen an expansion of "defined contribution plans" that put more control in the hands of the beneficiary. Those who learn to invest wisely have the opportunity become wealthy, those who would rather watch TV than learn about investing, will have to depend on the government Social Security during retirement. Our guest Teresa Ghilarducci has proposed an expansion of the US government's role in pension plans, probably at the expense of avid savers & investors.
Prof. Ghilarducci is the author of "When I'm Sixty Four", the Bernard L. and Irene Schwartz Chair in economic policy analysis at the New School, and a prime driver behind GRA's and MyRA's announced in the President's 2014 State of the Union address. What is a GRA? Should you setup a MyRA? What happens to the $17 Trillion currently invested in retirement plans? Will her proposal help you "Live the American Dream?" Or will it merely spread your wealth to others?
